Article on Number of Usability Test Participants

I have been looking, unsuccessfully, through back issues of interactions magazine for an article, published a few years back, written I believe by someone from Microsoft as part of a debate about statistical significance in usability testing. There was something of a debate about testing with large numbers of users, and this article, as I recall, made an eloquent case for sticking to six to eight participants. Does anyone remember this? Perhaps I'm wrong in recalling that it was in interactions.

Open format between Visio and Omnigraffle?

After observing the list for a while, it's clear that our community is split
between Visio users on PCs and Omnigraffle users on Macs. Is there a format
common to both Visio and Omnigraffle with which we can publish stencils,
templates, etc. so we don't have to duplicate our efforts? Alternatively,
are there simple converters between the two formats?

What are the details on contract IxD/UX work? (does it even exist)

While I was at an internship over the summer, a client recommended that I start seeking contract work while I finish up my MFA. (as opposed to my previous plan of taking a bunch of internships to learn different skills.. I'm told more than one internship can make it look like you didn't learn anything or your skills aren't up to par for a real position)

deliverables with a section on menu options with their related parameters

All,

What is it called when you are creating deliverables with a section on menu
options with their related parameters?
Can you point me to any sample deliverables for this?
I'm most interested in references for small screens.

Here is a link to an image that describes what I am trying to document:

For example, a list in my deliverable might show

volume limit (on, off)

The other issue is creating a deliverable used by many team members.

Need advice for starting a career in UX/Interaction Design.

Hello everyone,

I'm having a lot of trouble getting a job in UX/Interaction Design.

I've seen a lot of discussion with people in the same situation as me, but I'm wondering what I'm doing wrong or what I could improve on. (specifically in my case)

Here are the things I've been doing/done...

I've recently graduated with an HCI major at the University of Washington. I've taken as many classes I can with design, interaction design, user experience, etc.

Responsive Product Comparison Chart

We are currently working on creating responsive designs for a web site which provides/sells service-based products. The client wants the designs based off their desktop experience. One of the pages compares the service features in a side-by-side column format. Looks great in the desktop view but it not going to work in the smart phone view.

Tools for building a pattern library

What tool(s) did you use to set up your UI pattern library?

I know this question has been asked before*, but after repeated searches I'm not finding much of an answer. Seems there aren't any simple ways of doing this.

I'm currently using a mix of documents in collaboration with custom built (aka one-off) web-based solutions, but these aren't optimal for several reasons:

Omnigraffle IA stencils

Hi all,
For once - a non-snarky Will post. As of this week, I have made the
complete switch to Mac - and after installing Omnigraffle (new OS, new
machine, new everything including new way of doing wireframing and
sitemapping), I am on the hunt for all site mapping and wireframing
stencils.
